Plan B - Plan B Triumphs At Ivor Novellos

British singer/rapper Plan B is the early big-hitter at the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards after picking up three top prizes at the ceremony on Thursday (19May11).
The London-born star - real name Ben Ballance-Drew - scooped the coveted Songwriter of the Year trophy and also won Best Album for The Defamation of Strickland Banks.
His hit She Said was also named the Performing Right Society (Prs) Most Performed Work, seeing off competition from Kylie Minogue (All the Lovers) and Scouting for Girls (This Ain't A Love Song).
Drew admitted the Ivor Novellos are especially important because they're about creativity, insisting, "It's about the real talent, not about how many records I've sold."
Rock band Villagers took home the prize for Best Song Musically And Lyrically for Becoming A Jackal, while hip-hop star Tinie Tempah received the Best Contemporary Song honour for Pass Out. Tinie Tempah later presented fellow rapper Dizzee Rascal with the Inspiration Award.
Other winners at the ceremony will be announced later on Thursday.
